During the month of March 2013, the “chef d’équipe” and artist jenna dawn maclellan with her artist accomplice Chef Kim Waldron invite The Yellow Door’s 60+ Social Club to rediscover the banal through the “Nature Vivante” (UnStill Life) Workshops. In fact, there is nothing banal about the quotidian. The everyday comes to life where the ordinary becomes extraordinary as we undomesticate the domestic. Work becomes play as we infiltrate OBORO’s gallery, studios, office and kitchen. Cooking is reinvented through ludic actions and interactions while gaining exposure to performance and contemporary art practices. Over the course of the workshops “the socialites” will be exposed to both low and high-tech technologies as we reconstruct and question: reality or fiction? Our menu is forever changing. Along the way we will encounter special guests, The Women With Kitchen Appliances, as we celebrate life, the domestic arts and the everyday. As it turns out, a cookbook is not just a cookbook.
